Odell Lake is a simulation game in which you take the role of a fish in Odell Lake, Oregon. You meet various forms of animal and plant life, including other types of fish.
Each time you meet another animal or a plant, you must decide what to do. Your decisions determine whether or not you survive!
There are two ways to play Odell Lake: - Go Exploring - Play for Points
When you go exploring: - You choose the fish you want to play; - You are told the names of the plants and animals you meet; - You can take as much time as you want to decide what to do.
When you play for points: - The computer chooses the kind of fish you play; - You are shown pictures of the plants and animals you meet, but not names; - You have a limited amount of time to make each decision.
